The First Avenue of Service
We are a volunteer organization which requires everyone’s help to make the club operate. Everyone gets a chance to pitch in at various times throughout the year. Club Service includes tasks like collecting money at the door, giving the invocation, leading the opening song, greeting arriving members and the like.
The Second Avenue of Service
As business leaders, Rotarians share their skills and expertise through Vocational Service. Your Vocational Service efforts can play a vital role in improving the quality of life for those hardworking members of the community who need direction and expertise. By participating in any of a number of Vocational Service activities – mentoring, career days, vocational awards, business assistance, or even talking about your job at a club meeting – you can turn your experience into an invaluable resource for others.
The Third Avenue of Service
Many members focus on Community Service projects. Community Service can be likened to “rolling up our sleeves” to serve our community. Club projects include helping with an annual Holiday Party for underprivileged children, being servers at a Veteran’s Thanksgiving dinner, participating in various community activities, and participating in various scholarship programs or one of many others projects.
The Fourth Avenue of Service
International Service is for the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service, to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace. International Service provides an opportunity to stay informed regarding the work of the United Nations, world politics, peace, and other international topics, and to exchange views on related topics and other invited organizations.
